THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Tom Collins
Here's a drink that I've never made before. One of the classics, a Tom Collins is basically gin, lemon juice, and club soda. I make one in that classic way in the video. It's refreshing but could use a little more taste. I add a 1/2 shot of sweet and sour, and that makes a big difference in taste. After filming, Letty added a 1/2 shot of amaretto which made it really good. We're calling her modification an Amy Collins.
Watch the Video!
1 1/4 oz - gin 1 oz - lemon juice 4-5 oz - club soda 1/2 oz - sweet and sour mix (optional, add 1/2 oz of amaretto to make it an Amy Collins)
Classic recipe is 94 calories. With sweet and sour, it's 104. Add the amaretto and it's 144.
